Usually I feel as though we need to plan for a party. Make or at least have some sort of cookie in the pantry. Get tea and honey out etc. Well, not today and not because of my own doing! The Lord orchestrated this very simple but terribly fun time!
This morning I saw a commercial amidst the news hour about a little girl having popcorn at her tea party. No fancy cakes, pastry or cookies. She was drinking fake tea. Yes, I know the commercial was an add for popcorn but I was allowed to see it at the right moment. To prepare me for my little ones plea...
I was summoned to tea moments later. The Little Chef played "mother" and poured. We brought out some strawberry preserves to fill up any empty pots. She was dressed in this weeks favorite ball gown and we had tea. This in turn brought all the other ladies running for their turn at tea. Impromptu and so much fun!
Perfectionism get out of my way! I need to take tea with my Ladies.
Thank you dear Lord. You've taught my daughters and myself about spur of the moment hospitality and me to let go (a little bit more) of perfection.
